The demolition of Heanor Hospital has started then. Am I missing something?

I would not have thought it was the best way to do it seeing as it “WAS RIDDLED WITH ASBESTOS”.

Was the asbestos removed first or was it just pulled down?

If it was removed first why did they not use the building again seeing as how this was the most expensive part of the job in the first place.

If they did not remove it first, what consideration was given to local residents. IE asbestos particles in the air.

As for the five past workers going to have a look, shouldn’t they have been wearing breathing masks of some sort? Anyway, I am still sorry to see it go.
